Children’s Theatre: Spot

26 – 29 October @ The State Theatre Centre of WA ·
Presented by CDP ·

Spot is one of the most loved dogs in the world, and he’s coming to Perth! The yellow puppy with a brown spot on each side of his body and a brown tip on his tail, will bring his live show to the State Theatre Centre in October.

Spot and his friends are off on a new adventure to visit Spot’s Dad on the farm and meet the farm animals. But when they arrive, all the animals are lost! Can Spot and his friends find them all? They might need a little help from their new friends in the audience……

Eric Hill’s beloved puppy comes to life on stage with puppetry, songs, and puzzles for children aged 18 months to 7 years including the accompanying adults who probablygrew up loving Spot as much as their children.

This is the latest show by CDP who have been bringing quality children’s productions to Perth for many years. These include The Gruffalo, The Gruffalo’s Child, Room on the Broom,  Billionaire Boy and the ever increasing Treehouse series.

Children: Theatre: The Gruffalo

4 – 9 June @ The State Theatre Centre of Western Australia ·
Presented by CDP ·

Whether their favourite food is roasted fox, owl ice cream, scrambled snake or Gruffalo crumble, audiences eat up this delectable tale about the adventures of a clever little mouse in a forest full of predators, which returns to Perth after sell-out seasons when it plays at the State Theatre Centre of Western Australia from 4-9 June 2019!

Adapted from the Gold Award-winning children’s book, The Gruffalo follows Mouse into the deep dark wood on the hunt for hazelnuts. Armed with just a nut map and a very vivid imagination, Mouse runs into the smirking, wheeler-dealer Fox; an eccentric, retired Woodland Air Force General Owl; and the maraca-shaking, party animal Snake. Rather than becoming the main course of their next meal, Mouse kills their appetites with stories of an imaginary monster friend. But what happens when Mouse welcomes face to face with the very creature she imagined? In a production that has become the toast of London’s West End, Tall Stories & CDP vibrantly reinvent this delightful tale through its signature style of bold, multifaceted storytelling.

A trio of bright new performers fill the forest with colourful characters and toe tapping, sing-along songs. Audiences will be dazzled with brand new sets and costumes when the return season entices fans with the magic of the deep dark wood.

Tuesday 4th of June at 1pm
Wednesday 5th of June at 10am & 12pm
Thursday 6th of June at 10am & 12pm
Friday 7th of June at 10am & 12pm

Theatre: Children: Billionaire Boy

24 – 27 April @ The State Theatre Centre of Western Australia ·
Presented by CDP ·

David Walliams’ third novel for young audiences Billionaire Boy is a number one UK bestseller. In 2019,  CDP Theatre Producers (the team behind The 13-, 26-, 52-, 78- and 91-Storey Treehouses, The Gruffalo and David Walliams’ Mr Stink) are proud to bring the beloved novel to life on stage! Coming to the State Theatre Centre of Western Australia this April, it’s perfect for children aged 6-12 – and their adults!

Since 2008 David Walliams has taken the children’s literary world by storm; his bestselling novels have been translated into over forty languages and have sold over ten million copies in the UK alone. Walliams’ books have achieved unprecedented critical acclaim and countless broadsheet reviewers have compared him to his all-time hero, Roald Dahl.

Twelve year old Joe has everything a boy could ever want, from a golden underwater Ferrari to his very own cinema. Joe and his Dad have more money than you could imagine, but what Joe really needs is a friend.  When Joe arrives at his new school, life really gets tough. Facing the school bully, his Dad’s new girlfriend and the world’s worst school canteen, Joe is about to learn that money might buy you a lot in Raj’s shop, but it can’t buy you everything.

Don’t miss this original Australian adaptation with songs, laughs and yes, that cat sick and sweet potato mash from the canteen…

A talented cast of five bring the Billionaire Boy to the stage, exploring important social issues such as bullying, relationships and self-esteem through enjoyable, accessible comedy and loveable characters and lots of laughs.

“Billionaire Boy is a poignant tale about a boy who has everything. Everything except a friend. It’s a riches to rags story that will warm your heart. Filled with humour and soul, this is not a show you want to miss!” – Maryam Master (Playwright)

23 – 28 April @ The State Theatre Centre of Western Australia ·
Presented by CDP ·

Room on the Broom live on stage returns to the State Theatre Centre of Western Australia, from 23-28 April. Based on the much-loved picture book by Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler and brought to you by the award-winning team behind The Gruffalo, The Gruffalo’s Child and The 13, 26, 52, 78 & 91-Storey Treehouses, the Witch and her animal friends are flying in to the State Theatre Centre of Western Australia following sold-out seasons across the country during 2016 and 2017.

The witch and her cat are flying happily on their broomstick – until a stormy wind blows away the witch’s hat, bow and wand. A helpful dog, bird and frog find the witch’s lost things, and they all hop on the broom for a ride. But this broomstick’s not meant for five and – CRACK – the broom snaps in two! When a hungry dragon appears, who will save the poor witch? And will there ever be room on the broom for everyone?

Room on the Broom brings together physical theatre, music and beautiful puppetry to bring this much loved story about friendship, sharing and working together to the stage for children aged 3-8… and their adults!

Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s beloved characters come to life in a production which has received critical  acclaim around the world:

“A truly theatrical feast that leaves both adults and children fully entertained. Five stars” The List
